when it does. imagine classroom in a blended learning environment where rich digital content comes from the very best providers where teachers are managing the learning experience for students. where it's competency based. we don't sit our butt in the seat for 180 days and say it's time to take three months off and come back and sit our slighter bigger butts down for another 180 days. we move to a system where if you master the material you are not held back. if you haven't mastered the terrible you're not bushed along. the accountability to customize the learning experience in a powerful way is what technology offers. that requires changes of law. many states are embracing element of what is the digital learning revolution. in doing so, i think they will accelerate learning in ways that will create the gaps. we will see them begin to narrow and it will create real opportunity for continuous improvement and advancement. the final thing i'm going tell you talk to you about is about another book. that's the book being a texan by birth and floridian by choice. i have a little texas her tib

are not in a position to do things that we otherwise would be in a position to do in terms of shaping the environment to prevent war. so in my view, america's fiscal picture increases the risk of conflict around the globe. maybe not always involving the u.s., but certainly the risks are increasing globally based on our fiscal picture. the fifth point i would want to make is that the budget deal requires us to deal with a full deck of cards. and those people who keep wanting to take things off the table, in my view, are not being rational in terms of addition and subtraction. and when i say a full deck of cards, that includes defense participating in deficit reduction. this cannot be in the case of defense a sledgehammer approach. it's going to take a long runway dealing with these issues over time to give the defense department, and they can make, in my view, very significant changes in the budget, but do it in a way that does not damage our security. doing it abruptly as the fiscal cliff does or in a very compressed time frame is not only inefficient, i think it endangers our security and our risk.

as the environment, energy, it's an absolute winner, but we have to do it with the least amount of subsidy and god forbid there should be a profit in some of these operations, but i think we could actually achieve that if we work together. so let's take the report together. first of all, the board of directors, in pria we had organizational problems from very top of the board. i asked the question before. we went to a nine-member board and seven members of the board had been appointed, two democrat appointees were lacking. yesterday, i'm told -- yesterday the white house submitted these two nominees. i'm pleased to see that and i hope the senate acts with due speed and get the folks aboard and in place. sometimes it takes a hearing to get action. whether it's implementation of a strategic plan or highlighting that the board should be filled. maybe they did that of their own volition but i'm very pleased that it was done. all right. let's look at the key folks in place, and you divided it into six divisions. i'm very pleased of what you said about possibly not going forward with the commuter activi

because i believed that we needed to continue to have an economic environment, an economic climate that has stability and encourages growth and encourages jobs. i'm sure we can all agree that there is more work that needs to be done. but i'm hopeful in the days, the weeks, the months and the year ahead that we can finally come together, not as democrats and not as republicans, but as americans who are concerned about the future and concerned about that next generation. in doing so, i know that we'll tackle the challenges that our country faces. you know, i'm always proud to tell the people i meet that i represent north dakota. down here in washington, we are the envy of the nation. we have the lowest unemployment in the country, a budget surplus. we're seeing unprecedented economic growth and one of the brightest futures ahead. and to the great people of the state of north dakota, i want to express my deepest gratitude for giving me the opportunity to be north dakota's voice, the voice here in the u.s. house of representatives for the last two years. i'd also like to thank my staff
